Today was our last day going to visit our family. The boys seemed really surprised to see us actually so i am wondering if they got confused about what day was supposed to be our last and thought it was last tuesday. Regardless we set up shop and got to work on their homework. Looking through their folders you realize that they don’t really do their homework when we arn’t around, which really makes me worry for their future. Without us coming every Tuesday to help out with their studies are they going to continue to do it or just forget about homework since their parents don’t really understand. I hope they continue on with their homework because we know that they are having some difficulties but hopefully we taught them well.
This week Colleen brought them some pencils and a drawing pad and the boys loved them. The oldest is really a great artist, even though he is very modest about it.
After we finished helping them with their homework we decided to play a new game this week and taught them how to play charades. It actually seemed very educational because they learned a bunch of new words as well as what they meant beucase they had to figure out how to act them out. They seemed to really enjoy this game and the mother even watched us from the living room. After we had our last cup ever of the best coffee I’ve ever had it was time for us to say goodbye.
I’ve learned a lot from working with this family and I hope that they can take away the same things that I have.
